“We’re having lower unemployment rates.”

The statement is FACT . See why: According to the Employment and Unemployment Survey, carried out by the Inter-union Department of Statistics and Socioeconomic Studies (Dieese) and the Federal District Planning Company (Codeplan), Brasília registered 260,000 unemployed in May 2022, which is equivalent to a rate of 15.8%,
The index went through two consecutive declines, after being stagnant at 17% for three months (between January and March). In May last year, the rate was 19.4%. According to the survey, in these 12 months, 64,000 jobs were created.
“In the Rollemberg government, social assistance was limited to delivering 6 thousand basic baskets, and there were only 24 thousand people in the DF without Misery.”

The declaration is FAKE . See why: the historical series on the DF sem Miséria program shows different numbers from those indicated by the candidate. According to the Social Development Department, the program served an annual average of 60,000 families between 2015 and 2018, a period in which the Federal District was governed by Rodrigo Rollemberg (PSB).
The statement that social assistance was limited to the delivery of basic food baskets also does not take into account the existence of programs such as the Community Restaurant, which has existed since 2008, and the School Material Card, instituted in 2013.

”Águas Claras is a city that has practically no public facilities. There is no UBS in Águas Claras. We have only one public day care center, but there is no high school, for example. There is no elementary school.”

The statement is FACT . See why: although there are spaces intended for the construction of public facilities in the original Águas Claras project, including schools, there is only one public day care center in operation in the region. The Jequitibá Early Childhood Education Center (Cepi) has been in operation since 2015, but there are no elementary or high school units.
According to the Águas Claras Residents Association (Amaac), the region does not have basic health units (UBS), although there is a lot on Rua 25 Sul destined for this purpose. The nearest UBS is in Areal, but normally those who need assistance are referred to the Taguatinga unit.
The Health Department says that there is a plan to expand Primary Health Care, with the construction of a new UBS in the region. A plot of land is selected and registered for parliamentary amendment, and, according to the ministry, “is in the phase of elaboration of complementary projects”.

According to the survey, 80% are men, 70% self-declare as black, 14% white and 11% indigenous. Also according to the survey, there are 244 children and adolescents living on the streets in the capital.

The declaration is FAKE . See why: according to the Department of Mobility of the DF (Semob-DF), from January to August of this year, R$ 859.2 million were transferred to bus companies. The portfolio’s forecast is that by December, the transfer will reach R$ 1 billion. In 2021, according to the GDF Transparency Portal, the transfer was BRL 790.95 million.
This year, the transfers were R$ 118.4 million for the Student Free Pass, R$ 69 million for the Free Pass for PCD and 671.8 million for the technical fee.

‘”We have wagons [do metrô] that are already 30 years old.”
Fact — Photo: g1
The statement is FACT . See why: the fleet began to be purchased in 1994, that is, 28 years ago. The substations of Companhia do Metropolitano do DF (Metrô-DF) contain protective equipment with technology from the 1980s.
According to Metrô, in addition to being old, they cause “incompatibilities with the local concessionaire’s protection system, causing general shutdowns, often unnecessary”. Currently, the Metro has approximately 42 kilometers of commercial lanes, with a fleet of 32 trains, 24 of which are used during peak hours, with intervals of 3.5 minutes.
“The first thing I’m going to do in the first 90 days is a surgery effort. Let’s encompass private and public hospitals and see the idleness. This was done in some capitals and it worked very well. In 90 days, the surgery queues were zeroed because there was commitment (…)”.

The declaration is FAKE . See why: despite the fact that the São Paulo government created a joint effort in May to eliminate the waiting list for elective surgeries, the government’s goal was to “zero it” in 5 months and not 90 days. In addition, two other joint efforts launched in 2021 with the aim of streamlining medical care in oncology and ophthalmology in the state of São Paulo have not yet reached the stipulated goals.
As an example, Corujão da Saúde, aimed at cancer patients, was launched on September 29, 2021 and had the goal of performing tests on 335,000 people with cancer, such as MRIs and CT scans. After almost nine months, only 52% of them were performed.
Corujão, with a focus on meeting the demand in ophthalmology, launched on October 20 of last year, promised 50,000 visits. The goals of exams and consultations were met, however, only half of catara surgeries were performed by the end of May this year.
